Keeping wild animals in captivity can cause various bad effects. One of them is the loss of some instincts.
Recently a Russian wildlife park experienced it as the lion Sirona lost her maternal instincts. Sirona gave birth to two adorable cubs but couldn’t care for them properly.
So the wildlife center had to do something with the cubs. And they decided to find another mother as the cubs would not survive if not for this gentle maternal care.
Sandra, the German Shepherd gave birth recently and had her litter. But as these cubs needed her the kind dog began caring for the lions too. Sandra fed them and loved them as her babies.
The lion cubs received the solace they wanted in their adoptive mother, and that saved their lives.
